Hi People, I am planning construct a arduino interface to me and after know Brewtroller I intent use it.

So, my setup has 3 vassel (MT, HLT and Kettle). It is a e-HERMS. HLT and Kettle have one boiler element 5000 w each. I am using only one Chugger that is used to recirculate and sparge. Form MT to kettle the liquid flows without pump. I dont use eletric valve and flow sensor.

So, my question is if EX version is the simplest one to my setup.

Thanks,

Fabiano

It sounds like an EX would work for you, however please note that they are not available for sale any more

Give me more information about your plan to construct. Bear in mind the EX was prebuilt enclosure based on the BX board, so shoot for that if thats your intention.

In terms of the files, you will need the custom IDE on the website and the 2.6 firmware. Its well documented about what changes you will need to make.

Adam, I will implement my version on an Arduino Mega board. So, is there a version ready to use on the board?

Thanks again,

Fabiano

Fabiano,

The BrewTroller firmware is not designed to run on an Arduino Mega. It is specifically designed to run on the custom boards we sell. It is technically possible to make one run on your Mega, but it will require a lot of work mapping pins and adding other hardware to handle the various features. Any version of the firmware will be the same in that manner. There is not one that is better for your plan.

I know there are a few folks who have worked on doing what you intend, I'd suggest trying to find them for help if you decide to keep going.

-Adam
